In addition to increasing heap size, try to optimize your code also. Try creating minimal XSL-FO objects in code. Like instead of creating multiple "tables" try handling code inside few tables. Try to remove all unwanted attributes.

  Use the -Xmx switch in your Java invocation.  For example,

java -Xmx1000M ...

This allocates 1GB heap space for your program.

Hey all,    I'm having a bit of trouble with XEP giving me a java.lang.OutOfMemoryError.  The XML files I'm working with are quite large (26-50MB), but my server  admin has allocated 2GB of RAM to the java runtime environment on a machine  that has 4GB of RAM total. Am a bit confused as to why 2GB of RAM is  insufficient for a 26MB file. Am I doing something else wrong?    I'm cc-ing the server admin, as my role is primarily in XSLT development.
